Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between smart DNS and VPN?
In some ways, they are similar - you can use either to access streaming services. However, with smart DNS you won’t have access to most of the usual Surfshark features.
Can I set up a VPN on my Apple TV?
Setting up smart DNS will provide you with some of the VPN functionalities on your Apple TV. However, if you’d like the additional layer of security that stems from encrypting all your traffic, there is an alternative option.
You can set up a VPN on your router, and therefore protect all your network devices - plus, enjoy the same benefits that smart DNS has. You can find all the setup guides here.

Surfshark apps and smart DNS are both safe to use, as long as you’re following both your local and international laws. Please note that if you’re concerned about your privacy and want to enjoy our toughest security features, you will benefit from using our apps.
Will smart DNS slow down my connection speed on Apple TV?
